|There is no way I could save the settings, since it went on the blink. I tried to download an application for the registry, to fix it, and it was taking to long to boot, so I hard booted it and shut it down, which now I think was a mistake. There were over 100 errors on the registry scan, supposelly. I now think that was a milk job. The free scan was to get me to go for the full installation. Anyways, after that, the whole thing, PC, wouldn't boot. Don't mess with these downloads for registries.|
The bottom line, after putting the jumper on clear CMOS, with the motherboard completely removed from the tower, I then put the jumper back on normal operation and then put the motherboard back into the tower, hook up the connectors, and fire it up?
This is after removing the battery to test it. That's all I did, but this motherboard is an older board, with 3 RAM slots that take SDRAM, I think, it's got two cut outs, so I think it's older RAM sticks. It has 4 PCI slots, and 1 AGP Slot for the video card. It also has 2 other long slots that are for backward compatibility? I think that's for some older type of expansion cards, I'm not sure.
Now I'm getting a beep beepbeep, beep beepbeep, beep beepbeep, over and over again when I try this other hard drive that I had sitting around. I went to google and put beep codes into the search box and that was a whole new pandoras box to open.
If someone could explain this to me, plain and simple, once is all I need.
Yesterday, I fixed a computer at Tune-Up Masters that had a virus. It took me 5 minutes to fix it. Yes I have knowledge fixing and building PCs but I can always use more knowledge. I do hv class notes that I can look up to see. I took the beginning, intermediate, but not the advanced class in PC Hardware. I also took PC Troubleshooting about 1 year ago on an online class from El Camino College.
